Election problems abound

Junior Scott Fritch fills out an affidavit to change his district before voting in the Student Government elections
Tuesday evening. Some students reported the wrong addresses were used to determine their ballots.


* SOME STUDENTS VOTED
IN THE WRONG RACES.

By DAVID COHEN
Alligator Writer
dcohen@alligator.org

Internet connection prob-
lems, lack of available comput-
ers and random technical lapses
contributed to one of the most
beleaguered election days in
UF's history.
"Everything that could have
gone wrong did," Student
Government Supervisor of
Elections Daniel Maland said of
UF's first swing at 'an Intranet
election Tuesday. "Fate wasn't
necessarily on my side this
morning."
Voting-system malfunctions
popped up at several of the
12 voting sites throughout the
day and contributed to some
students voting for the wrong
candidates.
The Southwest Recreation
Center did not have computers
set up for voting when voting
began at 8 a.m. The problem was
not fixed until noon.


Southwest Recreation Center
poll worker Liz Wolfe said she
wasn't surprised there were no
computers when she arrived at
7:15 a.m.
"It's a major undertaking to
get something like this off the
ground," she said.

'It's like a nightmare'
Impact Party District D
Senate candidate Justin Bell said
he was too angry to vote.
He approached the
Southwest Recreation Center
desk, and Wolfe asked for his
Gator 1 Card.
Bell said he lost the card
Monday.
She asked for his identifica-
tion number, he gave it, and his
address popped up -but it was
not his address.
Her screen, with informa-
tion supplied by the University
Registrar, reported that Bell
lived in the Murphree Area.
"I never even lived in
Murphree," he said.
Bell said he last changed his
address online about a year ago.
He said he was so upset he did

Turnout increases on first day


By STEPHEN MAGRUDER
Alligator Writer
smagruder@alligator.org

Voter turnout increased marked-
ly during the first day of this year's
Fall Student Government elections
after about 3,000 people showed up
to the polls; almost as many as in last
year's
entire
Election election.
I3 Last
Fall,
when
Access was the only party running,
3,727 students, or about 8 percent of
the student body, voted.
The new voting system, which
replaced the log books and paper
ballots of prior elections with an
updated computerized system, kept


lines short at certain locations and
caused lines elsewhere.
Voter lines were shorter in the af-
ternoon at Murphree Hall, Norman
Hall and the CIRCA lab, where
students came in one and two at a
time.
Voters faced long lines at loca-
tions with one or two computers. In
Broward Hall, the line stretched to
more than a dozen people waiting
to vote on the only computer avail-
able at the polling location.
Poll workers at Norman Hall said
they were pleased to avoid flipping
through voter log books of previous
elections in favor of computerized
ID verification.

CAMPUS
Students to fight for cereal
The student group Florida Free
Culture will protest anti-competi-
tive patent laws Wednesday night
at Bowls: A Cereal Joint, 13 W.
University Ave. -
The event, called Cereal
Solidarity, will run from 6 to 9 p.m.
and will focus on Bowls' conflict
with a Pennsylvania-based cereal
chain called Cereality.
This summer, attorneys for
Cereality wrote Bowls owner
Rocco Monteleone to stress their
pending patents. Cereality en-
listed Perkins Coie LLP, which was
recently ranked the No. 3 trade-
mark law firm in the country by
Intellectual Property Today.
"Cereality has resorted to pat-
ents to bully their competition,"
said Gavin Baker, president of
Florida Free Culture. "We want
to show that Gainesville stands
together when local businesses are
bullied by bad laws."
Cereal Solidarity will present
Bowls patrons with a three-part
petition that asks Cereality to
withdraw its patent application,
the U.S. Patent and Trademark

Office to reject the application,
and Congress to eliminate such
patents altogether.
Small bowls of cereal will cost
$1 at the event.
Florida Free Culture is an
organization determined to
"encourage open content, par-
ticipatory media and the free
flow of information," Baker said.
Cereality's pending patents di-
rectly restrict innovation.
"When someone is trying to
take out a patent on mixing cere-
als and adding milk, that is just
wrong," he said.
Chapters of the Free Culture
effort at institutions includ-
ing Swarthmore, Franklin and
Marshall and Scripps College
will hold similar events protest-
ing Cereality's patent in the near
future, Baker said.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT ELECTIONS

Impact accuses harassment, illegal advertising


By JUSTIN RICHARDS
Alligator Writer
jrichards@allrgator.org

Election complaints to be filed today by
the Impact Party include an accusation that
a Gator Party candidate sexually harassed
a female student and committed battery
against an Impact candidate, party spokes-


man Adam Roberts said.
Impact also plans two other complaints.
One claims banners hung on fraternity
houses violate Student Government election
codes. The other concerns a Gator Party ban-
ner that was hung up on SG-funded poles,
after party officials were warned twice that
the poles were forbidden for- campaign ad-
vertising.


Dustin Rollins, a Broward RA, testifies against Impact Party candidate Victor Bard
(third from left) during an SG Election Commission hearing Tuesday in the Student
Honor Court. Impact Party President Thomas Jardon looks on (center).


The accusations of battery and sexual
harassment are being made against Gator
Party Rawlings-area candidate William
Perry. Impact alleged that he yelled offen-
sive phrases to female students that walked
by as he campaigned.
Gator spokesman Thomas Philpot could
not be reached for comment late Tuesday
night.
Impact also contended that Perry wrest-
ed campaign materials away from Impact
candidate Victor Bard, and pulled away a
student to whom Bard was talking.
Bard himself was convicted of door-
to-door campaigning in Broward Hall, an
election infraction, at a Tuesday night SG
Elections Commission hearing.
"It's not a legitimate, legal way to cam-
paign," Elections Commissioner Josh Curry
said.
Bard received a reprimand and a $25 fine.
He acknowledged that he was campaign-
ing door-to-door Thursday, after which
his Resident Assistant on the second floor
passed him a warning from Supervisor of
Elections Daniel Maland.
Assistant Supervisor of Elections Drew
Hennigan filed an election complaint
against Bard when fourth-floor RA Dustin
Rollins told her that Bard repeated the of-
fense. Rollins said five residents reported
Bard's repeated illegal campaigning to him.
Witness Ian Edwards confirmed Bard's
testimony that for the second infraction,
he was only delivering T-shirts to party
supporters that had requested them, not
campaigning.
Edwards said he escorted Bard in and out
of the hall within 10 minutes.
Without sufficient evidence on the second
instance of illegal campaigning, the commis-
sion charged Bard for his first offense.
"I just fail to see the justice in that,"
said Impact President Thomas Jardon, who
served as Bard's counsel, "convicting him of
something he was warned for, with the un-
derstanding that he would not be convicted
if it was not done again."
Rollins, the fourth-floor RA, is in Tau
Kappa Epsilon Fraternity, which Bard's op-

ponent pledged this semester.
Tau Kappa Epsilon Vice President Ryan
Ulloa was also present at the hearing,
though he did not offer any testimony.
Roberts said his party has scheduled
a meeting with Dean of Students Gene
Zdziarski to discuss other election problems.
Impact said they may ask for the recall of
all votes cast by Rawlings-area residents and
for Broward candidates,
When students from the Rawlings area
logged in to vote, only Broward candidates
appeared on the computer screen.
Political science freshman Kate Endrelunas
said this malfunction caused her to vote for a
party she would not have otherwise.
She said she supported the Impact candi-
,date running in her district.
"It was just frustrating just because I
didn't know anything about the candidates
from the other hall," she said.
But her sorority, Delta Delta Delta, sup-
ported The Gator Party, so she voted for that
candidate in a district that wasn't hers, she
said.
Endrelunas said she had to vote in SG
elections because her sorority had mandated
she put an "I Voted" sticker next to her name
on the sorority's "voting wall."

Students campaign for Levin College of Law alumnus


By ANGELA CASTELLANOS
Alligator Contributing Writer


The Florida gubernatorial election may
be in 2006, but a few UF students are eager
to get a jump on the race.
Sen. Rod Smith, who earned a law






... .


degree from UF in 1974 and success-
fully prosecuted Gainesville serial killer
Danny Rolling in 1994, is now vying for
the Democratic gubernatorial nomination
in Florida in 2006 and has several UF stu-
dents campaigning on his behalf.
"All the candidates talk about what


Tim Casey / Alligator Staff
Student volunteers Matt Haber and Laurel Hammond work on campaign materials for
state Sen. Rod Smith on Tuesday afternoon at the local Smith campaign office.


they are going to do -for Florida," said
Raquel del Castillo, the 19-year-old execu-
tive aide to Smith's campaign manager.
"But Senator Smith can actually say what
he's done. He's sponsored bills and passed
legislation. This is what convinced me to
work for him."
Volunteers at the campaign office have
been receiving phone calls for contributions
to Smith's campaign. They also help orga-
nize and do research for various events.
As a senior at UF, del Castillo is also
one of the volunteer coordinators for the
campaign, which opened its Gainesville
office in August.
She has been working in politics since
she was a junior in high school, volunteer-
ing for several state Senate campaigns as
well as John Kerry's presidential cam-
paign in 2004.
"One of the things I am doing in this
campaign is helping to start university
groups across the state," del Castillo said.
"We are trying to get younger college stu-
dents involved."
Del Castillo said she recently registered
Gators for Rod Smith with the Student
Activities Center.
Among the volunteers is Jessica Sackin, a
UF senior applying to law school who previ-
ously interned with Smith. She and the other
volunteers are working on organizing an
upcoming event for Smith in Dade County.


"He's pretty well-known in northern
and central Florida, which is mostly
Republican," Sackin said. "Right now we
are working on getting his name out in
southern Florida."

"He's pretty well-known in north-
ern and central Florida, which is
mostly Republican."

UF student


Kevin Combest, another volunteer, is
a 21-year-old political science major who
had the Democratic candidate as a profes-
sor at UF during Spring for a class on is-
sues of constitutional law.
"He gave the best lecture I've ever
had in college on Marbury v. Madison,"
Combest said. "It was a three-hour course,
and I was just enthralled the entire time."
A registered Republican, Combest
volunteers six to eight hours a week for
Smith and said he was convinced to sup-
port Smith by his behavior in and out of
the classroom.
"He would drive back and forth from
Tallahassee to Gainesville to teach his
class, eyes red from travel and work,"
Combest said. "He is more connected to
the students. He has lived in the state."


Group raises health, environmental concerns of coal


* UTILITY COMPANY ARGUES
AFFORDABILITY.

By JESSICA RIFFEL
Alligator Writer
jriffel@alligator.org

The coal-fueled generator pro-
posed for expanding Gainesville
Regional Utilities would harm
residents' health and the 'environ-
ment, according to a report from
the Alachua County Environmental
Protection Advisory Committee.
Dian Deevey, a member of the
committee, said the emissions from


the generator would increase global
warming and that GRU should fo-
cus instead on conservation.
."Energy efficiency and conserva-
tion can play a huge role in reducing
the need for new generators and de-
laying the time that they're needed,"
she said.
Instead of purchasing the coal gen-
erator, Deevey said GRU should offer
reduced rates for off-peak hours and
pursue other energy sources such as
wind, solar and ocean current.
"There is worldwide pressure
for green-energy technology that
doesn't release greenhouse gases
into the environment," she said.


GRU spokeswoman Kathy Viehe
said the company has implemented
six energy programs this year, in-
cluding an air conditioning rebate.
Deevey said many of GRU's
conservation efforts focus on alter-
ing consumer
Alachua County behavior by
Commission encouraging
them to turn
off lights
and reduce appliance use, but this
doesn't make a significant differ-
ence.
"They're trying to look good,"
Deevey said.
Also, 'there is an extent to con-


servation because GRU has a policy
that doesn't allow conservation
programs if they increase rates.
However, GRU can buy a new coal
generator even if that increases
rates.
In a recommendation to the
City Commission, GRU said it
wants to use coal, biomass from
waste wood and petroleum coke,
a byproduct of oil refining, as fuel
sources. .
"The recommendations we made
balance affordability for all our cus-
tomers' ... energy conservation, and
they reduce our overall emissions,"
Viehe said.


But Deevey said' GRU doesn't
have an incentive to reduce electric-
ity consumption because that would
decrease its sales.
"Rightnow the City Commission
and the utilities are interested in
selling more energy because they
don't know there's another way to
secure the income they need," she
said.
GRU could cut the tie between
sales and income by adjusting rates
slightly, Deevey said.
Deevey said GRU should aban-
don this policy and not purchase the
generator since conservation efforts
will pay off in the long run.

Gators chill with UF technology


Tim Casey/ Alligator Staff
UF linebacker Brandon Siler talks with co-defensive coordina-
tor Charlie Strong during the Gators-Kentucky game Saturday.


By GALEY GRAVENSTEIN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Cooling down doesn't have to wait
until after the Gators are off the field
anymore.
The University Athletic Association
purchased new cooling football pads
developed by researchers at UF's
College of Medicine.
"Around the chest region, upper
and middle back is where there is more
'blood flow," said Michael Gilmore, or-
thopedic surgeon and co-developer of
the cooling system. "We focused in on
these areas and created channels in the
pads for air to flow through."
The Gators tested the new cooling
gear for the first time in their victory
against Wyoming and also used it in their
Louisiana Tech and Tennessee games.
"We all definitely looked more fresh
and less winded," said sophomore de-
fensive lineman Javier Estopinan after
the Wyoming game. "But then again,
we did have strong summer' practices
that got us in shape for this season.".
Since the heat-related death of UF
freshman football player Eraste Autin
in 2001, the issue of playing in Florida's
hot and humid environment has be-
come a concern.
"Heat poses a threat to anyone
wearing excess clothing capable of trap-


ping in the heat, whether it be race car
drivers, umpires or policemen," said
Sem Lampotang, associate professor of
anesthesiology and co-developer of the
system. "You're cooking in your own
little world."
"When it is 100 degrees and
I'm running without pads, I
don't feel that much heat. It's
like 30 more degrees added
on when I'm running with my
helmet and pads."
Nyan Boateng
UF wide receiver

With field temperatures sometimes
reaching 120 degrees, the body's cooling
system can fail, causing one's tempera-
ture to rise to dangerous levels.
"When it is 100 degrees and I'm
running without pads, I don't feel that
much heat," said Nyan Boateng, fresh-
man wide receiver. "It's like 30 more
degrees added on when I'm running
with my helmet and pads."
Football players face a high risk
of heat stroke, dehydration and other
heat-related illnesses due to the high
levels of humidity trapped underneath
their pads.
Football uniforms insulate players


the same as a three-piece wool business
suit and have a higher evaporative resis-
tance than a sweat suit, according to an
online study by Elizabeth McCullough,
a professor at Kansas State University.
Between plays, Gators were assisted
by trainers and coaching staff in hook-
ing a tube located in the back of their
shoulder pads to a cooling unit on the
sideline.
The unit sends streams of chilled air
through the tubes and into the shoulder
pads to decrease humidity and lower
their body temperatures.
"During the last game, I noticed that
the pads were easy to hook up," said
junior quarterback Gavin Dickey. "It
only took a few seconds to connect and
disconnect them."
"You can't even feel the equipment,"
said Tate Casey, sophomore tight end.
"It definitely helped me cool down
quick and maintain a cool body tem-
perature."
Casey and his teammates are not the
only ones benefiting from this cooling
innovation.
Fred Williams, who licensed the
patent for the pads and owns Williams
Sports Group, said he is selling the
pads for $350 each and has found a
market with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers,
Jacksonville Jaguars and Green Bay
Packers.

Editorial
The Editorial Board has moved this week's Darts & Laurels
to today because we're spontaneous like that.
Based on the first day of Student Government elections, we
also think there's a big opportunity for some serious DARTS.
So-called "secured-site" computer voting is turning out to be
a complete mess.
Organization seemed absent, lines were hideous, and poll-
ing was anything but efficient.
Could this be a plan to sabotage the idea of true online vot-
ing? If this isn't sabotage, then it's gross incompetence.
Just implement online voting the way it was meant to be im-
plemented: through GatorLink. Cut out the inept middleman.
The Editorial Board calls for this election to be scrapped; stu-
dents did not get a fair chance to vote in today's mess.
So get out those markers, draw up an angry picket sign and
join the protest as we begin this week's early edition of...


Darts & Laurels
We'll start by blowing a the-point-is-to-make-it-easy-for-
students-to-vote-not-to-force-them-to-go-on-a-treasure-hunt
DART at SG election officials for not properly directing stu-
dents to a polling location on the third floor of the Reitz Union.
Did we call it or what?
Personal experience from Editorial Board members proved
that students had to go looking for the signs directing them
where to go. Apparently, we all have enough time between
classes to chase down the elusive computer ballots.
There are so many banners endorsing parties. Why doesn't
someone just make a few for the hard-to-find polling places?
At this point, we're going to go ahead and also give a DART
to the Editorial Board for misleading readers Tuesday by di-
recting them to Turlington Hall to vote. We got confused: While
some lists of precincts mentioned Turlington Plaza, it was com-
bined with the Computer Science and Engineering CIRCA lab.
In the past, Turlington did have a polling location. But be-
cause of the need for computers, officials moved it to the CIRCA
lab, which is even more hidden from view.
But sometimes finding the polls wasn't even good enough.
So we spit a you-guys-are-the-magicians-of-failure DART
at SG election officials for somehow creating unmanageable
lines to the polls while implementing what was supposed to be
a more efficient system.
Without the paper and pencils, computerized voting should
be quicker and easier.
Officials seem bent on making a mess of things.
We'll concede that this is the first election of this kind, so
maybe they just need some practice.
But this is yet another reason to let students use their own
computers.
However, one problem tied to the Internet voting system
would have occurred whether voting was on campus or off.
Some students were unable to vote for the senators running
in their district. In many of these cases, the reason was because
students only had their hometown address listed with UF.
And there is no one running for District E, which basically
represents everything outside of Gainesville.
Guess who we're going to blame this one on?
We slingshot a this-happens-every-year-and-you-still-have-
rio-reasonable-way-to-deal-with-it DART at SG election offi-
cials for neglecting to foresee the inevitable.
Every single election, students have this problem. In the past,
poll workers have made students fill out paperwork to change
their address and vote for the district they claim they're from.
It's also always a problem for students to determine what
district they're really from, and it makes a paper trail mess.
Internet voting opens up the possibility of easily directing
students to a Web site that will immediately change their ad-
dress and tell them their district.
Instead, students are still filling out paperwork and every-
one's still confused.
This is a university that is dependent on computers and the
Internet. All UF students know how to use computers. Some
even specialize in it.
Why can't we get it together for a computerized election?

Question: How many sorority girls does it take to
screw in a lightbulb?
Answer: 51. One to do the installation, 50 to
clap their hands and make T-shirts.
Yes, we all love to have fun at other people's expense.
And here on campus, we have a large population of easily
identifiable fraternity and sorority members who seem to
call out for jokes. Greeks are easy to mock, so we mock
them. They are easy to denigrate, so we denigrate them.
In and of itself, this is basically harmless. These are big
boys and girls, and a few jabs from outsiders are no big deal.
However, we start to run into trouble when we take
these little jokes and jabs and try to craft them into a co-
herent political philosophy.
Here's the thing: Where most folks want to be a part
of the "in crowd," there are quite a few" people who take
a certain pride in "outsider" status. There's a certain plea-
sure in being virtuous non-conformists, looking in with
clean eyes and clean souls and pointing out the moral
bankruptcy of the status quo. And there's no group more
obviously conformist than this collection of "identical"
men and women wearing shirts proclaiming the virtues
of their community.
As you no doubt know, today is the final day of Student
Government Senate elections. And as you're probably
aware, one of the parties (it rhymes with Nader) possesses
many candidates who are members of fraternities or so-
rorities. There was a front-page story in the Sept. 13 issue
of this paper detailing exactly how many Gator Party sen-
ate candidates were Greek.
Those numbers seem to bother a lot of people.
I am not one of them.
Look, SG is serious business. Serious money is in-
volved, and it needs to be handled by serious people who


ALLIGATOR
www.alligator.org/opinions


ignore Greek status
are chosen by serious voters.
The Greek-ocity or non-Greek-
ocity of candidates needs to be so
far down the list of voting ratio-
nales as to drip off the paper. And
that runs both directions; if we're
Andrew Bare going to eviscerate the Greek com-
The Bare Truth munity for voting on candidates
letters@alligator.org based entirely on their fraternal
loyalty, it would be disingenuous
to stay silent when there are voters who reject candidates
because of their Greek roots. '
If you're legitimately upset with the state of UF and
think the current SG in some way contributed to that
situation, then by all means vote for whichever party you
consider the one that will produce change. That's prob-
ably Impact, and you know, that's a perfectly legitimate
decision. You'll hear no objections from me.
But if you go home on the weekends and beat your
breast while proclaiming how great it is to be a Florida
Gator, if you're legitimately proud of the situation here, I
won't say that you must vote for Gator. That's not fair; a
great situation can always be improved. But if that's your
viewpoint, it might be wise to scale back the whining next
time you complain about the influence Greeks have in
SG.
This isn't.an exhortation to vote for Gator or to vote for
Impact. I don't offer endorsements, and if I did, no one
would care.
Instead, this is a plea to approach your ballot with a
regard for the candidates' views and experience. Not their
Greek status.

Letters to the Editor
Troops aren't fighting for freedom in Iraq
Once again, in response to the anti-war
demonstrations, the pro-war crowd is insist-
ing that the troops are in Iraq fighting for our
freedom. Nothing could be further from the
truth. The troops are there fighting for our
imperialistic corporate government agenda.
Period. It has nothing to do with 9/11, freeing
the Iraqi people or spreading democracy.
It looks like the majority of Americans are
finally coming to this conclusion, and the tide
seems to be changing, based on the response
we got last Saturday at Gainesville's protest
against the war. Even the SUV and giant pick-
up drivers were giving us a peace sign and a
thumbs up instead of the customary middle
finger. Ayear ago, even a few months ago, you
would not have seen that.
As for supporting the troops, I can only
support them by trying to bring them home.
Now. They aie killing thousands of innocent
Iraqis and I can't support that. If the "insur-
gents" weren't our government's enemy, Bush
would be calling them "freedom fighters." I
have no quarrel with them.
I'm a combat veteran of the Vietnam War,
and when I was "in country" I remember be-
ing glad that the protesters at home were try-
ing to end the war. I don't remember anyone
other than lifers being upset about anti-war ac-
tivity back in the States. As soon as I got home,
I picked up a sign and went into the streets to


support the anti-war movement.
I don't care about harming the morale of
the troops in Iraq. Maybe some of them will
wise up, lay their guns down, and go AWOL
or go to jail. That's better than killing for lies.
That would be the most noble thing they could
do over there. That is what I wish I would
have done 36 years ago.

Drop/Add extension out of Gator's hands
In your Tuesday editorial on the "infeasibil-
ity" of The Gator Party's platform, you failed
to mention how this is not the first election the
extension of drop/add has been made an is-
sue. I am appalled that The Gator Party even
dares to mention the word "accountability" in
its platform when officials know in advance
they can't accomplish what they've said they
will do.
Extending the drop/add period is an ad-
ministrative issue. Drop/add, as well as the
rest of the UF calendar, is decided years in
advance. Even if it were possible to change
drop/add, today's students will be long gone
before it is accomplished.

University's response to cartoon politi-
cally driven and discourages free speech
By reducing the Sept. 13 cartoon to a les-
son in discipline (that we ought not use such
naughty words), the university is acting like
the upset mother of corrupted children and
the Student Senate like a bunch of simplistic
politicians.
What I've seen as a response to this car-
toon is a dangerously political instinct at
work trying to ignore context and manipulate
emotions to make a widely understood point.
A person of culture will look at the cartoon,
pause and turn the page; only a politician
could seize this to make something of it.
Requesting the requirement of additional
diversity credits seems to me a superficial
consideration, as if most of the students at
this university are not intelligent enough to
comprehend the issue at hand and need more
training.
Joe Goldberg's executive .order halting
Student Government's advertisements in
-the Alligator was a childish abuse of power
and was obviously intended as punishment.
Yet it could only serve to constrain a diverse
campus culture. The Alligator was obviously
not intending to disrespect black people by
printing that cartoon.
It is my opinion that the university's stance
discourages free speech, and the reactions to
the cartoon have been vastly overblown.


It is rude to label someone foolish sim-
ply because th&y say something that seems
superficially racist or tasteless; we should
listen to what they have to say with charity
toward their position. I'm not about to toss
out my copy of "Huckleberry Finn" because
it contains racial slurs on every other page.
It would be foolish to disregard that
particular context; everything we say is in-
dexical. It would be equally foolish to take
a contemporary example and disregard it,
as so many have done, because it strikes us
boldly in an almost criminal fashion.
We should take this as an indication that
a political cartoon in a student newspa-
per can still shock and surprise. Isn't that
significant? And even valuable? Everyone
would be much better off without a lecture
on politeness such rudely devitalizing
responses ought to be reserved for the de-
monstrably uncouth.
Much more importantly, we must rec-
ognize the value of a newspaper left free
to make such a bold statement, rather than
standing it up to be smacked on the wrist
by those who, are alarmingly eager to give
a smacking. That the university has chosen
to take the emptiest and least compromis-
ing position is disappointing, but hardly
surprising.

GatorWalk to raise money to fight premature birth


* EVENT RAISED ABOUT $75,000 FOR
THE MARCH OF DIMES LAST YEAR.

By CHERYL CLARKE
Alligator Contributing Writer

One small step by UF students can lead to
a giant leap for research in preventing prema-
ture births.
The second annual GatorWalk is a fund-
raising event for the March of Dimes to fight
prematurity and raise awareness in the UF
community, said Meredith Pelton, chair-
woman of GatorWalk 2005.
GatorWalk will be a 3.5-mile walk through-
out campus, starting at Flavet Field at 2 p.m.
Sunday.


The March of Dimes' mission is to improve
the health of babies by preventing premature
births, birth defects and infant deaths.
"One in eight babies is
Around born prematurely," she said.
GainfeSille "A premature baby can cost
up to $1 million, and many
will stay in a NICU (neonatal intensive care
unit) for months at a time."
NICU is a unit for newborn babies who
need specialized treatment.
GatorWalk will offer education stations to
teach students about prematurity.
Premier Productions and EA Sports will
also provide water breaks during the walk.
"The real message here is right now we
have an epidemic in premature birth," said
Lynda Knight, executive director of the March


of Dimes' Gainesville chapter.
In the last 20 years, the premature birth rate
has increased by 30 percent, she said.
GatorWalk had more than 500 students
raised about $75,000 for the March of Dimes
last year, Knight said.
Pelton said the March of Dimes Collegiate
Council tried to get as many participants as
possible last year.
"We tabled, e-mailed organizational presi-
dents, spoke at organizational meetings and
spoke in residence halls," she said. "Generally,
we tried to create a buzz about how important
it is to raise money to save babies."
. GatorWalk T-shirts will be given to all par-
ticipants who raise at least $50.
Pelton also said the top fundraising team
will receive a Florida-Georgia football game


package for two of its members.
The participant who raises the most money
will receive a year-long lease for a three bed-
room, two bathroom apartment at Oxford
Manor, courtesy of Paradigm Properties.
Pelton said an award ceremony will be held
Oct. 24 at The Swamp Restaurant during which
the top fundraising teams will receive trophies.
The organization that raises the most
money will receive the Collier Cup, sponsored
by Paradigm Properties.
Devina Patel, president of the UF March
of Dimes Collegiate Council, said the Pi Beta
Phi Sorority received the Collier Cup last year
when it raised $10,150.50.
Students unable to register before the event
can sign up for the walk on Sunday, Pelton
said.


ON CAMPUS

Showcase opportunities limited for foreign students


By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Writer
liewis@alligator.org

Clad in a well-pressed suit with
resumes in hand, graduate student
Mustafa Can was eager to meet
potential employers during the
first day of UF's Career Showcase
Tuesday afternoon at the Stephen C.
O'Connell Center.
However, despite Can's qualifica-
tions, many corporate representatives
turned the electrical-engineering stu-
dent away after just one question.
"They want to know if I'm a
U.S. citizen," said Can, who is a
Turkish native. "They tell me I'm
overqualified, but they can only hire
American citizens."


Although many companies repre-
sented at Tuesday's Career Showcase
claimed to advocate workforce di-
versity, some said they were unable
to hire international students because
of governmental restrictions.
"A lot of companies just aren't
interested, especially if they do
work for the government," Can
said. "It's very, very hard to get
hired anywhere here without U.S.
citizenship."
The Career Showcase is divided
into two days, and while today is
geared toward students looking for
non-technical work, Tuesday's event
featured companies representing a
variety of technical fields.
Many of these companies, such
as NASA, Intel and Siemens, partici-


pate in work that requires employ-
ees to either hold American citizen-
ship or confront various challenges
in order to obtain special visas..
"They tell me I'm overquali-
fied, but they can only hire
American citizens."
Mustafa Can
UF graduate student

"I think that-first of all, [compa-
nies] don't want to get in with pro-
cedures of visas, and if U.S. students
get the internships, it's easier for
them to be hired later," said Nikhil
Kale, an international student in
the Dep-artment of Industrial and
Systems Engineering.


He added that while some
companies are not prohibited from
employing foreign students, bu-
reaucratic constraints might compli-
cate the international hiring process.
Therefore, recruiters tend to give
preference to American candidates.
"They say that right now they
don't have any positions for inter-
national students, but if there is ever
a shortage of locals, then they might
go for us," Kale said.
Dave Rosenthal, a co-op man-
ager for NASA, said heightened
governmental security measures
made it impossible for him to con-
sider international candidates.
"NASA does work for the federal
government, and we can t hire non-
citizens," he said.


However, Rosenthal emphasized
that although NASA cannot hire
non-U.S. citizens, the company of-
fers a diverse range of job openings,
including those for business and
public-relations students.
Mark Lyden, a college re-
cruiter for Boeing, said that UF
students have an especially wide
range of options with .technical
companies.
"I think the depth of the qual-
ity here is excellent. UF is big, so
therefore it's got a lot of people that
are great," he said, adding that he
hoped to employ as many UF stu-
dents as possible.
"If I see 200 tremendous candi-
dates, we're going to try and hire
each one," Lyden said.

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 28,2005 ALLIGATOR, 9


Advisers offer transfer help


By ALEXIS LLOYD
Alligator Contributing Writer

Managing a schedule for the current semester
is tough enough. Planning ahead for the next
one at a new school can be overwhelming, but
Gator hopefuls at SFCC can get some guidance
today.
Grasping the inner workings of a transfer to
UF and what the admissions requirements are
can boggle the minds of some SFCC students,
not to mention the immense contrast in the
student body SFCC holds 15,000 students to
UF's 49,000.
"Some think going from a community college
to a [four-year] college is easier," said Amanda
Smith, an SFCC student planning to transfer to
UF. "I think it is more difficult because you have
to learn the ropes all over again."
SFCC students like Smith will have an oppor-
tunity to meet with UF admissions counselors
from every college at the sixth annual Gator Day
at the Northwest Campus.
Students will discover what they need to do
to become a UF student.
SFCC Director of Academic Advisement
Lynn Sullivan said she has seen many students
who have not planned for or researched transfer
requirements well enough. This has hampered
some. students' abilities to transfer as scheduled.
"It is critical to a student's success to plan
early for the transfer to UF," Sullivan said.


"Admissions to UF are becoming more competi-
tive."
The event is a way for students to make face-
to-face contacts with advisers from their major
or to shop for a major.
"Advisers can help direct you to what your
passion is instead of just a job or career," said
Smith, who plans to transfer to UF's College of
Agriculture and Life Sciences for Spring 2006.
"Since UF is so hard to get into, it will help to
network with someone directly related to my
major."
"Advisers can help direct you to what
your passion is instead of just a job
or career."
Amanda Smith
SFCC student

Sullivan said the busiest times during the
event are during class breaks, which are nor-
mally 10 minutes before the hour. Two hours
have been added to the event to give students
a stronger chance of receiving individual atten-
tion, but Sullivan playfully warned, "Do not skip
classes to come to Gator Day."
Gator Day runs from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in R-01.
Sullivan said to "just follow the orange and blue
balloons."


Forum focus narrow


* STUDENT SAYS EVENT
'BUSINESS-ORIENTED.'

By MARIA LAVERGHETTA
Alligator Contributing Writer
Students voiced disappointment
over advice given at the Career
Resource Center's Internship Forum
on Tuesday, saying that the discus-
sion was not broad enough to ac-
count for UF's array of majors.
Both undergraduate and gradu-
ate students attended the forum at
the Reitz Union, held every semester
as an outgrowth of Career Showcase
organized by the CRC.
Approximately 125 students at-
tended for the question and answer
session with company representa-
tives starting at 6 p.m., but only 70
students stayed until it ended at 7:
30 p.m.
Many students walked out due
to previous engagements, but some
left because they felt it was not help-
ing with their particular career path.
"I don't think it was very di-
versified," said Neli Velentzas, a
sophomore political science major.
"Everyone was very business ori-
ented."
Aimee Cedres, a sophomore
French and political science double
major, said the forum was intimidat-
ing, but if her major was different, it
would have been helpful.


"All the internships were geared
toward the structure of corporate
America," she said.
The nine corporations present in-
cluded IBM, Microsoft Corporation,
National Security Agency, Target,
McGladrey & Pullen, Naylor
Publishing, Harris Corporation,
Ronald McDonald House and
WCJB-TV20.
Recruiters saw the forum as a
success. However, they thought the
forum leaned toward specific career
paths as well.
0 n "It seemed like a lot
Campus of marketing and eco-
nomics majors," Jeff
Reiss, a National Security Agency
representative said. "I'm not .sure
why."
Even though the forum was ben-
eficial in the general sense of how
to prepare for internships, it did
not represent a wide enough range
of students, said Joanne D'Silva, a
graduate student in public health.
"Health care is such an interdisci-
plinary field," she said. "It would be

IRHA says dorm polling locations are inadequate


By ELIZABETH HILLAKER
Alligator Writer

The Inter-Residence Hall Association
spoke out at Tuesday's Student Senate meet-
ing, believing there are insufficient polling
sites serving campus dorms.
1The "mediocre" voting plan advanced
by the Student Government Elections
Commission failed to ensure all on-campus
residents have equal access to polling loca-
tions, IRHA President E.J. Walicki said.
Walicki said dorm polls are especially
important during Fall elections, because
residence hall seats are being contested.
"It's a matter of convenience," Walicki said.
"If you want people to vote, you don't make it
harder for them to get to a polling location."


Out of the 10 residence-hall Senate seats
up for grabs in this election, only four of
them Beaty, Broward, Murphree and
Springs have polling locations in the resi-
dence halls, according to a resolution read
by Walicki that IRHA passed unanimously
Monday night.
Three of the four polling locations are
located on the east side of campus.
In addition, the Tolbert, Graham and
Hume areas, which house more than 2,000
students, have no polling locations.
Walicki said he told SG officials at least
a month ago that the allocation of polling
locations was unbalanced.
"The fact of the matter is that in order to
get people voting in an election, you bring
the polls to them, not take them away," the


resolution states.
These problems could have been easily
remedied, Walicki said, adding that when
he first told SG officials about the need
for more precincts, he was given the run-
around.
t n "If by 'working
Electio w on it' you mean
'did nothing,' then
you did a good
job," he read from
the resolution to the Senate.
Walicki said he was told by election
officials that putting computers in more
residential areas was not feasible because of
the difficulties of getting computer Internet
access at the dorms, limited time to train
new poll workers and the increased costs of


buying extra ID scanners and paying more
poll workers, he said.
However, the online voting was sup-
posed to drastically reduce costs, so SG
should still be under-budget, he said.
Student Body President Joe Goldberg
said time was a factor in the implementa-
tion of secured-location online voting, but
that Supervisor of Elections Daniel Maland
researched to make the elections as acces-
sible as possible.
Maland was not available for comment.
Walicki said he wants SG to rethink its
election procedures, so the election com-
mittee does not meet one week, but rather
three or four weeks before the elections to
approve elections plans, allowing problems
to be reworked. -


Students miffed at lack of signs

On Tuesday, Josh Simmons, David Mayrowitz and Tommy Jardon hold the "reality check" il-
lustrating how much tuition-funded money Student Government manages.

RESULTS, from page 1

were seen asking voters includ-
ing two Alligator reporters for
their "I Voted" stickers, saying they
needed from two to six stickers per
person for their fraternity.
While the fraternity member at
Broward Hall declined to comment,
Alpha Kappa Psi business fraternity
brother Eddy Lai said there would
be "consequences" if he did not get
enough stickers.
One worker said more signs might
help attract voters who had to "seek
out" the polling locations, but he said
students seemed more pleased with
the new system as well.
Residential areas like Murphree
Hall and Broward Hall had no out-
side signs indicating they were poll-
ing locations, but Gator and Impact
supporters were stationed outside
the doors reminding students where
they could vote.
Engineering major Brett Henning
said a lack of signage kept him from
the polls Tuesday.
"I went to the Reitz Union, where
the voting normally is held, because
I read you can vote anywhere this
time," he said. "I didn't see signs
telling me where to vote, so I left."
Polling locations were moved
from the first floor of the Reitz
Union to the computer lab on the
third floor.


Henning said while he will prob-
ably vote today, he would prefer
an Internet voting system in future
elections.
"Actual online voting, where I
can vote from my own computer,
would be nice," Henning said.
Some voters logged on and were
led to ballots with candidates repre-
senting other districts.
History major and Murphree
Area -voter Benjamin Anderson
knew who he was going to vote'for,
but when he logged onto the voting
computer at Murphree, he was pre-
sented with different choices.
"It had me vote for off-campus
senate seats," Anderson said. "I
knew the person that I wanted to
vote for, so I knew that something
wasn't right."
When he told poll workers of the
mix-up, Anderson was directed to
SG offices on the Reitz Union third
floor to clear things up, but he was
allowed to vote for the candidates
who appeared when he logged on.
The problem occurred even
though Anderson's on-campus ad-
dress was verified by poll workers.
He said he planned to vote for his
district today, but the problem may
have affected more students.
"The only reason I caught it is
because I communicate with local
politicians," Anderson said. "I'm
guessing a lot of other people may
not have caught it."

Jumping into the fray

-Antoinette, mark Representative


a




~ /~


It was early. I was cranky. But I
was trying to set a good example
and vote, in part because I wanted
to emblazon an "I Voted" sticker on
my chest all day, though I can't say
why.
I decided to check out one of
the most-frequented voting loca-
tions the Computer Science &
Engineering CIRCA lab.'
As my sleep-deprived body
wobbled toward the back of the lab,
a "VOTE HERE!" sign caught my
attention.
Without thinking or saying a
word, I handed poll worker Sylvia
Spitaleri my Gator 1 Card and re-
ceived my treasured sticker from
the other worker, Jessi Brabham.
Spitaleri said I was in District E,
which represents all of the areas-
outside UFIE and Gainesville.
But I didn't think I sat down,
put in my GatorLink information.
Then, it hit me.
No one is running for the District
E seat. I live in north Gainesville,
which is part of District A. I asked
Spitaleri what to do. She said to go


to UF ID Card Services to change the
address that UF has associated with
me. I could have avoided all- the
confusion by doing it online before
I went to vote. Oops.
I didn't think about my situation
again until I was at the Southwest
Recreation Center interviewing
Impact Party District D Senate can-
didate Justin Bell about his own ad-
dress issues with the Registrar.
I strolled back into the center
and asked poll worker Liz Wolfe to
swipe my card again to see irf had
successfully voted. She said I had
and that she couldn't change it even
if I voted for the invisible District E
candidate.
She put me on a list and said
SG Office Manager Sandy Vernon
would clear me to vote again for my
real district. I was the second person
on the list.
Wolfe said the problem was
simple.
"It's just a matter of doing a little
housekeeping," she said.

not want to fill out an affidavit form,
which is used if the wrong address
is reported online.
He said he may not have time to
vote for himself today.
"It's like a nightmare," he said.

No votes for librarygoers
Library East's voting booths
were not running until two-and-
a-half hours after the start of the
election.
"The guy from elections never
came by," said Gary T. Cornwell,
a university library chairman, at
Library East at 9:30 a.m. "We've got
machines set aside for him."
Library assistant Adrian Zeck
said a student came by asking
where he could vote.
"He was the only one who
asked," Zeck said. "There might
have been more."
Maland said he came by the
library Monday night to set up. the
system but was unsure about which
computers to use. He said he didn't
have time t9 go to the library early
Tuesday because of problems at
other high-traffic voting locations.
Gator Party District D Senate
candidate Richard Slaughter sym-
pathized with Maland's difficulties.
"Every time you do something
new, there is a learning curve," he
said.

Secure or insecure?
Impact volunteer Joshua
Simmons, a computer science fresh-
man, said he was using the new
voting system when something
peculiar popped up on his screen.
Simmons said he entered his
GatorLink user name and password
when a message appeared: He was
entering an insecure connection.
"It surprised me," he said. "I
was told it was supposed, to be se-
cure, which is why I can't vote from
my dorm."


Simmons said it seems to him
the only thing that makes the new
system more secure than a com-
pletely online version is that poll
workers check identification cards
for verification.

Broward voting drained
The Internet connection went
down at Broward Hall around 10
a.m.
"They can't fix it," journalism
freshman Noel Sanchez said-of the
Broward Hall malfunction. "They
said to come back later."
At that point, four students
walked out of Broward Hall.
"I can't vote," a girl shouted.
Maland said the Housing
Internet system was to blame.
"The Housing network is a very
peculiar and interesting animal," he
said. "Within the night's time, set-
tings had changed and information
had altered."

Rawlings votes scrambled
Impact Party spokesman Adam
Roberts said a computer error al-
lowed Rawlings Hall residents
to vote for Broward Hall Senate
candidates.
Maland said the problem was
fixed by 3 p.m. He added that the
problem was caused by the sys-
tem, which linked Rawlings-area
addresses to Broward Senate can-
didates.
Maland said he will not make
a decision on what to do with the
votes until the election ends today
and he reviews all information.
"There is no way to backtrack,"
Roberts said. "Both hall numbers
are going to be incorrect. It's not a
political issue when something like
this happens. This is a brealld'wn
in the democratic process."
Impact District D Senate candi-
date Amanda Kane, who has seen
four years worth of elections, said
Tuesday's problems made history.
"This is the worst election I've
ever seen," she said. "It's bad for
both parties. It's a disaster."

Meyer wants consistency from Jackson


By IAN FISHER and
ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writers

UP wide receiver Chad-
Jackson is fifth in the country
with eight receptions per game.
He's 19th in the country in
scoring and receiving yards per
game.
He leads the Southeastern
Conference in both receptions
and receiving yards per game.
That's not enough, though.
Despite racking up touch-
downs and receiving yards,
Jackson hasn't been a member
of Coach Urban Meyer's weekly
Champions Club yet this sea-
son.
Jackson is struggling with
consistency, Meyer said.
"Every play, every down,
he's got to be consistent blocking
and running routes, and he's not
consistent," Meyer said.

0-LINE IMPROVES: Meyer said
his offensive line had one of
their best practices yet Tuesday.
Part of that was because of
guard Tavares Washington's
-return to full-speed, Meyer
said. Washington missed the
Kentucky game with a hyperex-
tended elbow. ,
"The offensive line had a
good day, a real good day,"
Meyer said. "As long as we con-

He was interviewed at
halftime by ESPN, but didn't

Meyer said. "My wife filled me

said.

Turmoil turns to triumph for 'Bama's Croyle


* DESPITE THREE COACHING
CHANGES AND TWO INJURIES, THE
QUARTERBACK IS GOING STRONG.

By FARZAD SAFI
Alligator Staff Writer

Brodie Croyle's four-year nightmare has
finally come to an end.
From injuries to probation to a firsthand
view of Alabama's coaching carousel, the
Tide's starting quarterback has been there
long enough to see every one of the pro-
gram's lowlights.
There was a day, however, when all
Croyle could see was his direct path to the
top.


,The 6-foot-3, 205-pound quarterback
entered the recruiting game as a Super Prep
All-American and was considered by many
analysts to be the top prospect in the nation
in 2000.
Former Alabama
coach Mike DuBose told
Croyle that he had all
the skills to follow in the
footsteps of former great
Crimson Tide quarter-
backs like Joe Namath
croyle and Kenny Stabler.
Alabama quarterback However, a new coach
in Dennis Franchione ar-
rived in 2001 and the growing pains began.
"I formed a really good bond with Coach
DuBose because he and my dad played col-
lege ball together," Croyle said. "Next thing
I know is he gets fired and Coach Franchione


steps in with his option offense."
The blue-chipper was told to redshirt his
first year because he did not fit the system.
"At that point, it didn't look lik, :Alabama
was the place for me anymore," C:oyle said.
Croyle kept his head up and worked
extremely hard in the offseason. His work
ethic impressed Franchione, who played the
freshman in 12 of the Tide's 13 games in the
2002 season.
Unfortunately, the 2002 season would
be bittersweet, as the NCAA levied the
Alabama's football program with a five-year
probation.
In the midst of the conspiracy, Franchione
resigned and relocated to Texas A&M with-
out as much as a goodbye to his players.
Croyle heard the news that his coach was

Four games into the season, the

Four games into the season, the
Gators' backup quarterback is the
team's second-leading rusher.
The Gators are averaging 149.2
rushing yards a game (56th in, the
nation), well short of Coach Urban
Meyer's desired 250 per game.
Chris Leak is clearly a great passer
and has had a couple nice runs this
season, but still sits at -1 rushing yards
for the year. Clearly, this is not what
everyone envisioned as far as the
running game goes. It has been disap-
pointing that none of the Gators' four
backs has done enough to separate
himself from the pack.,

Not exactly the 1,200- to 1,500-

It's so bad that Meyer had to almost
re-implement the fullback into his of-

extra blocker.
Why hasn't someone stepped up
and ran away with the job yet?
"I don't know, to tell you the truth,"
said Skyler Thornton, who will at least
talk to the media, unlike Wynn. "If I
knew it, I'd be doing it right now."
Obviously it's not easy to win the

Ex-Gators to lead rival Bulldogs


By DAN TREAT
Alligator Writer
dtreat@alligator.org

Just when you thought UF
coach Mary Wise had no more
milestones to pass, she was at it
again last Friday, tallying her 200th
Southeastern Conference regular
season victory when the Gators de-
feated Mississippi State.
When asked at a press conference
Monday what she thought about
when she hears 201-3, which is her
regular-season conference record,
she responded by saying, "Those
numbers just make me sound old."
Wise may have come a long way
since being hired as the head coach
of Iowa State at the ripe old age of
21, but she has been around long
enough that those who once played
for her are now guiding teams of
their own.
As UF prepares for a midweek
road contest against Georgia tonight
in Athens, Wise will be peering
down the sideline at a pair of famil-
iar faces. Steffi Legall, who played
for the Gators in 1990 and 1991, is in
her first year as the Bulldogs coach
after serving as an assistant the last
three seasons, and Nicole McCray,
who finished up her Gators career in
2002, is a Georgia assistant.
Wise, however, doesn't believe
that the Bulldogs first-hand knowl-
edge of the Gators program should
be a cause for concern.
"You can't worry about those
things, the most important thing is
what the players do on the court,"
Wise said. "Even though the Georgia,
staff will be very familiar with our
routine and the things that we're
doing, it's all about the talent on the
floor."
Much like the situation UF faced
when they took on Notre Dame ear-
lier this season, the Gators will have
to contain a pair of experienced
seniors in international imports
Julia Petruschke and Alexandra
Oquendo, who have started every
game of every match throughout
their careers.
The challenge of facing Oquendo
will be the latest examination in the
ongoing development of sophomore

Kisya Killingsworth will take on an experienced pair of international play-
ers against a Georgia team lead by two former UF players.


middle blockers Kisya Killingsworth
and Kari Klinkenborg.
"We didn't have any success
stopping Oquendo a year ago, and
that was with our two All-American
senior middle blockers," Wise said.
"So we will hav6 quite the challenge
with our young middles trying to,
at least, slow down one of the best
middles in the entire country."


Despite the fact that the two
teams have had heated matches for
nearly all of Wise's tenure, includ-
ing a five-game thriller in last year's
SEC semifinals, the coach isn't wor-
ried about her team getting caught
up in the emotions.
"I think as a coach you get more
worried when they're no

Offensive Lineman of the Week Tuesday. Degory
became the first winner of the award at UF since its
inception last season.
Degory is the SEC's active leader with 42 consecu-
tive starts.

WELCOME TO THE CLUB: For the first time this year,"T
UF quarterback Chris Leak earned a spot in Meyer's
Champions Club. Each week, Meyer rewards his top
players from the previous game.
While most of this year's club members have come
from UF's defense this season, Leak's performance
against Kentucky propelled him into prestigious com-
pany.,
Leak completed. 25-of-32 passes for 319 yards and
four touchdowns while continuing his season-long
streak of interception-free ball.

STOPPING DARBY: While UF figured it wouldn't face
a tailback better than Tennessee's Gerald Riggs Jr.
this year, Meyer said Alabama running back Kenneth
Darby may be even tougher competition.
"I asked our coaches to compare him to Gerald
Riggs," Meyer said. "They said Riggs may be bigger,
but this guy is much quicker. We had better get both
hands on him. He's in the same class as Riggs as one of
the premiere backs in the SEC."

big touchdown runs that this
team should be breaking.
Maybe that's because there
is no feature back.
"For me, I played the posi-
tion and, as a running back,
you get rhythm when you're
in the game every play, every
situation," running backs
coach Stan Drayton said. "I
don't know if these guys are
getting a rhythm, getting
into the rhythm of the game.
Because of that, you're not see-
ing the full potential of these
guys."


Drayton said he feels com-
fortable with Wynn, Thornton
and Markus Manson getting
the ball. Freshman Kestahn
Moore is the odd man out
because he seems tentative,
Drayton said.
Running back by commit-
tee the whole year?
It sure makes you-,ridss
Ciatrick Fason. But Drayton
said he thinks all three could
be feature backs.
Thornton agrees.
"I do think there are guys
in the running back corps that
could carry it 25, 30 times a
game," Thornton said.
Someone prove it already.

Starters return from injuries quicker than expected


By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Writer

Megan Kerns admitted to nearly
throwing up before the first match
of the season, but that's not the only
thing that hampered the freshman
that night.
Kerns, who scored a goal and
collected an assist against Drake
on Aug. 26, said she injured her
knee before the game, adding to
the Tdxiety of her first collegiate
match.
Except for the nausea, Kerns felt
the same way in her first games
back from the injury last weekend,
still hampered by a repaired torn


meniscus.
"I don't feel like I'm at 100 per-
cent yet," Kerns said. "I feel like I'm
having a little bit of difficulty cut-
ting. My first step is a little slow, but
hopefully that will come back as the
season goes on."
The original prognosis indicated
that Kerns would have to sit out four
to six weeks following her surgery
on Sept. 7. But she returned to action
last Friday, logging 55 minutes off
the bench.
Kerns feels fine with the quick
turnaround.
"It doesA't seem like anything
else is going to go wrong with it,"
she said. "To come back from an in-


jury that fast is awesome. It was just
like starting the season over again."
That playing time could increase
over the weekend, as Coach Becky
Burleigh plans to ease Kerns back
into the forward shuffle.
"We were excited as heck that
she got back as early as she did,"
Burleigh said. "She's a little rusty,
and that's to be expected. She just
has to work on her touch."

KEEPER EXPECTS TO PLAY NEXT
WEEK: It was initially thought goal-
keeper Jen Gardner would play
through a broken cheekbone.
But after undergoing surgery
Friday, Gardner was expected to be


out three to four weeks. Now the
senior expects to be cleared to play
sometime next week.
"Initially on [Sept. 17] when I
went to see the
doctors, they
told me that I
was cleared to
play," Gardner
said. "The fol-
lowing Tuesday
I went to see an-
Gardner other doctor...in
which case I
needed surgery to fix it."
Gardner, who suffered the injury
on Sept. 16 against Florida State,


wants to come back quickly to re-
gain her starting spot guarding net,
now occupied by Brittni Goodwin.
That might not be so easy.
"Once Brittni has some games
under her belt for the season, it's
not going to be easy to try and break
the starting lineup again," Gardner
said.

HONORS: KeLeigh Hudson was
named SoccerFLA.com's Player of
the Week after recording both UF
goals against Alabama on Friday.
Hudson, who tied for third on
the team with five goals in 2004,
is now tied for the team lead in
points with seven.


Shula: No one tougher than Croyle


CROYLE, from page 18

leaving from a waitress in a diner.
"It hurt, but those were the cards I was
dealt," Croyle said. "It's what you do with
your hand that matters in life."
Matters only became more embarrassing
for Alabama that winter.
Mike Price was hired but brought shame
to the once proud football program before
he coached a single game. Price was fired
after going to a Pensacola strip club, bring-
ing an escort back to his room, and racking
up a $1,000 bill. Mike Shula was hired later
in 2003 and became the fourth head coach
Croyle had seen.
The Crimson Tide seemed to have turned
things around in 2004, when Croyle led
them to a 3-0 record. Tragedy struck again
when Croyle was lost for the season in late
September due to an ACL injury. Alabama
went 3-6 without its starting quarterback.
"I don't know much about Brodie Croyle,"
UF coach Urban Meyer said. "But I know
they were lost without him last year; much
like we would be without Chris Leak."

are a thing of the past now in Tuscaloosa.
Alabama is 4-0, sits atop the Western
Division of the Southeastern Conference,
and boasts the nation's No. 7 defense.
Healthy for the first time in ages, Croyle
has passed for 828 yards and six touchdowns
in only four games this year.
"It hurt, but those were the cards
I was dealt. It's what you do with
your hand that matters in life."
Brodie Croyle
Alabama quarterback

"Brodie has had some tough luck over the
span of his career," Shula said. "But nobody
is tougher than Brodie when it comes to ad-
versity."
It took a while, but Croyle can finally bask'
in the success that eluded him for so many
years.
"I wouldn't trade the tough times for
anything in the world," Croyle said. "Now,
I can't go out to eat without 15 people ask-
ing to take my picture, so don't feel too bad
for me."
